    A Changing table that folds out from the wall.

    Decorating the nursery at the mo, and its not a big room, but has a built in wardrobe, so we really dont want to waste space by keeping the dresser/changing unit in there. I dont really like the changing tables that you put on the cot, plus while we have the moses basket up we wont have a cot in there. I thought it would be really good to have one that folds out from the wall if possible to same space. Byt so far all I can find is ones for commercial buildings, not ones for homes.

    Can anyone find me something?

    Cat what about making one?
    i have like a fold table in my kitchen that when i don't use it flops down against the wall
    I can't remeber the name of the hinges though, but basically i pull tabble up and they lock in place then i have to grab them underneth to release, do you get what i mean???

    Might be easier and cheaper hun, to get a really good peice of wood and just edge it

    Hmm thanks for looking Wobbs but they look a bit industrial for a home nursery. That might be a good idea to make one though Jo. ight have to look into that. Icant believe there isnt anything like it on the market, it seems such a good idea.

    Please excuse the marks, they are glue, Emily uses it for crafty stuff :)

    Found this as well which i think is the kind of hinge you would need

    did you use a changing table much with Noah ? I had one for Ella and never used it, found it easier to change her on the floor on the bed, do you think you'd use one enough for it to be worth your while having one ?

    I have a dresser with a change table on top that even now I always change noah on. It does my back in to grovel about in the floor changing Noah, plus once he became mobile it was the only way to stop him trying to crawl off. Plus its handy cause I have everything there ready for use, in arms reach and its all neat and tidy.
